Omaha, NE (April 26, 2021) – One man was transported to an Omaha medical center following a two-vehicle accident that occurred on Monday along U.S. Highway 75, located just north of Fort Calhoun.
Deputies with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Fort Calhoun Rescue responded to the crash near County Road 30 around 3:30 p.m. Captain Aaron Brensel said the motorcycle was traveling southbound on Highway 75 when a northbound GMC Yukon attempted to turn left on County Road 30. The two vehicles collided shortly afterward.
The motorcyclist was transported to Nebraska Medicine with unknown injuries and the driver of the SUV sustained injuries from his vehicle’s airbag, though he was not transported.
Brensel stated that the events leading up to the crash are still under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, and everyone who was affected by this accident.
Motorcycle Accidents in Nebraska
More than 500 people are injured in motorcycle accidents across Nebraska each year. Riders are without adequate protection, which increases the likelihood of them sustaining critical injuries. Motorcyclists are more likely to sustain broken bones, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries that require extensive medical treatment and hospitalization. The aftermath of an accident can be a trying time for everyone involved. The emotional, mental, and financial impacts victims are often forced to endure can be overwhelming. Not only are victims forced to struggle moving forward, but their families are often forced to deal with the stacking financial burdens, lost income, and emotional consequences.
The unfortunate truth is that the majority of accidents throughout the state of Nebraska are a result of driver negligence. Although we can be diligent and in control of our actions while driving, there is little we can do to ensure others act in the same responsible manner. The fact that so many people are injured in preventable accidents is concerning.
